I’m having issue with timeshift in IPTV Simple Client, if I paused it everything is ok but when I press a short rewind then CE (0421) freeze, sometimes unfreeze in about 5 min then reloaded IPTV Simple Client and sometimes i have to unplug then plug it in back.
It doesn’t happen in ATV same configurations and channels list except that in ATV I’m using IPTVSC 20.9.1 and in CE 220.127.116.11
If you need any log or test, just let me know which commands I have to follow.
For black screen (no signal) if I go to Channels & Inputs settings on my Sony TV (XBR-85X900H) and change the HDMI signal format to any option (Standard format, Enhanced format, Enhanced format DV, Enhanced format VRR) then I get the image back from the channel, but when I switch to another channel, I have to do the same to get signal and so on. I usually have the Enhanced format DV by default.
Also I have to do the same for some third party video addon in some of the video streaming. I’m using Homatics Box R 4K Plus
I’m using IPTV merge in between since m3u4u doesn’t allow to load their channels list in Kodi. My channels are in .ts format. It strange cause it is working on ATV and PC with same channels list and configuration.
Now I’m facing another issue with Real-Debrid, I can paired the addon with RD but the stream doesn’t start. I checked Kodi log and it complaining that didn’t find secret key. It weird because it’s working in ATV, PC and in previous CE 21 (0421)
Just to clarify. We are talking about timeshifting, not catchup. Correct?
I’ve been testing Catchup today, and after a small change it worked for me, but it looks like there’s some kind of problem related to threading and mutex locks.
We’ll keep looking into it, it could be an issue with recent Kodi changes, or it could also be somehow caused by a bad rebase of our code on top of the Kodi changes.
